Isabel Futch, Guatemala, Bachelor of Business Administration
What led to your interest in business?
My interest in business arose when I found out that one of the things I most enjoy in life is helping others. How? Well…In order to help others, there is usually money involved, and I want to use it to the best of its capacities. I can only manage this with a degree of business because wanting to help comes from within, but a good education is what will help me succeed.
Why did you decide to join BSL?
I decided to be part of the BSL community because it is very small, and constitutes a very personalized education. In a way it feels like a family, and we all need some family when we are abroad.
How has your experience been so far?
So far I have been able to meet some very interesting people, attend events that provide a new perspective, and make close friends.
What are you passionate about? How will you bring your passion to your work in the future?
I am passionate about helping people. Ever since I was young, I have dedicated myself to different organizations and charities. I will bring passion to my work because even when it is something minimal, I always try to help.
As a child, what did you want to be when you grew up?
At first I wanted to be a veterinarian, and then I wanted to be a doctor.
Who or what inspires you?
Maybe not inspire, but drive me: People who challenge my abilities. I like to think that I can change the way people think or feel about something. People who put a big challenge in front of me maybe want to defeat me, but I think that they are only helping me build a path to improvement.
How do you see your professional future in 5 years from now? What will you be doing?
It is really hard to say now because I am still unsure of what I want to do in the future.
If you could make one significant change to the world, what would it be?
The one significant thing I would like to change in the world is corruption. Many countries like mine, Honduras, are countries with the potential to grow, but we stagnate because of corrupted leaders.
